I haven't been buying anything but that is probably more an matter of having all I really need already and commercial releases usually being nothing more than a cleaned up copy of a show already in circulation.

Like others I was and probably still am annoyed and let down by the way the whole matter was handled the boards being made unavailable for download here has been a huge blessing in disguise. I've made new friends, discovered new (better?) sites after I stopped spending so much time here. I also have aquired far more music than was ever on offer here, including GD never kosher at LMA and JGB to boot.

Realizing that perhaps Heads are seen as nothing but potential dollar signs by some in the 'family' was sad and the bands ability to avoid any good will (ie: squashing the MP3 downloads at GD net) is stupifying.

Seeing as the most popular torrents of new GD sources on the web only attract 1000-1500 takers (and most around 500 range) when it is FOR FREE, I don't know where Rhino thinks they will ever reap huge benefits from what they are squatting on. Perhaps the band played Rhino for a dupe when they unloaded the vault.
